The Armstrong Bookstore is your one-stop shop for all things Georgia Southern on the Armstrong and Liberty campuses whether it be products and services that support academic success or spirit merchandise! We sell licensed apparel, supplies, and gift items in addition to technology, Apple products, trade books, textbooks and academic supplies. As the official campus store, we have everything you need to study, play and live in blue and white.
Giving Back To Georgia Southern
Because the Armstrong Bookstore is managed by Follett Higher Education Group, a commission percentage of every dollar spent is reinvested into the campus, providing financial support for facilities and programs. Each semester, the store donates product to University organizations and departments supporting programs and events that directly benefit students, faculty and staff. Follett also provides textbook scholarships and a $20,000 yearly donation directly to the advancement scholarship fund to help future Eagles who are in financial need.

The Armstrong Bookstore offers all required and recommended textbooks and is a trusted campus resource for course materials and technology.

Unlike online and off-campus stores, the Armstrong Bookstore only sells the correct and complete editions of textbooks and course materials.
We offer multiple purchasing options by selling new, used, rental, and digital books. Book rentals can save students up to 80% off of new book costs. Follett has the largest in-store and online assortment of rental titles in the country and Georgia Southern students get to take advantage of that at the Armstrong Bookstore.

Textbook Tips & FAQs
Rent or buy your textbooks early. Before the first week of school, review your syllabi and determine which books will be needed. This will allow you to find your books in time while used book options are in stock. If you ultimately need to drop a course or realize the book will not be used, the Armstrong Bookstore allows students to return their unopened textbooks during the first week of classes and then 2 days after purchase thereafter. For more information, visit armstrong-shop.com or call to speak with a team member.
When buying either a new or used book, you have the freedom to write and highlight in the book. Books can be saved for future semesters; however, if you feel you will not use a book in the future, you can sell it back to the Armstrong Bookstore for up to 50% of the new book cost. If the book is not adopted by a professor for a future term, we will see if we can buy it for the national wholesale price. This is the pricing Follett will buy anywhere in the country and can even include books not used at Georgia Southern, so feel free to bring in any book, or check online at armstrong-shop.com using the ISBN. The pricing on the website is only the national wholesale value and could be higher in-store.
Renting provides the best value by allowing you usage of the course material for the length of the course. Why rent? When you rent your books, you'll pay, on average, less than half the new textbook price. Follett has the largest in-store and online rental program in the country. Normal highlighting and note-taking are acceptable in rented books. You get Free return shipping if you rent online as a registered user. Multiple forms of payment including bookstore credit can be used online to rent. Check armstrong-shop.com for details.
